The 2013 LS 460 comes in a pair of trim levels: Base and L. The base model is as loaded up as anyone would expect from a premium sedan, featuring things like leather interior, premium sound system, navigation, power seats, and so on. The L trim level is a long-wheelbase mode for a little extra cabin space, but it also sprinkles in a few extra features.
For the 2013 model year, the LS 460 has plenty of competition. One main competitor is the 2013 Audi A8, which features a standard 3.0-liter V-6 engine with 333 horsepower, premium leather seating, and tons of luxury. Next up is the 2013 Jaguar XJ Sedan, which comes with a 340-horsepower, 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 engine, leather interior and monster sound system. The 2013 BMW 7-Series comes with a stout 3.0-liter turbocharged engine that tosses 315 horsepower to the ground, and features high-end interior amenities, like leather interior, a 600-watt stereo system and 14-way power seats.
The Lexus and its aging V-8 engine have a lot of work ahead to fend off the up-and-coming V-6 powered European models.
